Neck Lift at Young Medical Spa
The natural aging process causes a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, resulting in loose and sagging skin around the neck and jawline. A neck lift can help reduce sagging skin on the neck which can create an unflattering facial profile and add years to one’s appearance. Young Medical Spa® offers various neck procedure to improve loose skin on the neck and jawline for a younger-looking you. A traditional neck lift at Young Medical Spa involves creating a small incision behind the lower part of the ear and directly underneath the chin. The skin is then gently raised, repositioned, and tightened for a smoother, tighter look. A micro neck lift, also known as a mini neck lift, places a smaller incision behind the lower part of the ear and is ideal for those who don’t have severely sagging skin on the neck. Young Medical Spa offers various non-invasive and non-surgical facial contouring options such as PrecisionTx™ to lift and tighten the skin on the neck. Neck liposuction can be paired with a surgical or non-surgical neck lift to remove excess fat and improve the contour of the neck and jowls.
Frequently Asked Questions about Neck Lift at Young Medical Spa
Scars associated with a neck lift are small, well-hidden behind the ear, and can fade over time.
Patients may experience swelling and bruising for up to ten days after their procedure. We recommend sleeping with the head slightly elevated and to try and minimize any rotation of the neck to help the incisions fully heal. Patients may experience a “tight” feeling around the treated area for up to a few weeks after their procedure.
Those who experience moderate to severe sagging skin along the neck and jawline may require a traditional neck lift for optimal results. Those who experience mild sagging skin may achieve optimal results from a non-surgical neck lift. If there is excess fat around the neck and jowls, patients may benefit from neck liposuction for a desirable contour. During your consultation, Dr. Shapiro can determine which procedure(s) are best for you based on your needs and concerns.
Non-surgical neck procedures with PrecisionTx require no downtime so patients can return to their everyday activities right away.
